Ready to Ship

After salting, the cod was packed into wooden boxes to ship just about anywhere in the world. To learn more about cod and the Gloucester fishery, read Mark Kurlansky's excellent book: "Cod, a Biography of the Fish that Changed the World." The Bookstore on Main Street has it, and I've seen salted cod in local supermarkets.

Fish on Fridays

The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.

This week we visit with Al Bezanson who recalls his days working at Gorton’s Seafoods in Gloucester. As an engineer he worked on ways to improve their products, specifically the fish cakes. Al moors his schooner Green Dragon in Smith Cove and is enjoying his summer stay at Rocky Neck’s Accommodations, where we shot this video.

Anthony Marks writes-

Hi Joey
In case anyone misses the farmers market on Thursdays at Stage Fort
Park, Marshall’s Farm Stand has a farmers market at Gorton’s on Rogers
Street every Monday and Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 pm. I tried their
native corn and it was sweet and tender! It’s the best i have had this
season.
    Best, Anthony

Taste of Home From Kate Young

Hi Joey,

I’m a faithful follower of GMG and I appreciate all that you do for Gloucester and all of Cape Ann.  We do live in the most beautiful place in the world.

My sister in California sent the attached photo she took at a grocery store in Buena Park, CA.  I thought you’d get a kick out of it.  She titled it “Taste of Home”.

News from the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District coordinating group

Catherine Ryan writes-

Dear Joey,

The November 13, 2012 CITY COUNCIL vote was UNANIMOUS to endorse the establishment of the proposed Downtown Gloucester Cultural District.

The DGCD coordinating group thanks the Councilors, our City Clerk, and the more than 30 partners and stakeholders who sent in letters of support and spoke at the hearing. Have a peek at a few: Cape Ann Museum , the Gloucester Public Schools , and Gorton’s.

Next steps: Send in the application and support materials and wait for word, guidance, and a visit from the Massachusetts Cultural Council!

and here is a link to the terrific article from last week’s Cape Ann Beacon. Thank you so much Jane Dooley for doing such a great job with the article and to Dave Sokol for the wonderful photographs.  It was a blast doing the article and the photos with them and they left happy with the tilapia salad for lunch and a container full of brownies!
